Journey Through Advent – A Video Series to Introduce and Reflect on the Season

Monday, November 27, 2023

Today, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) announces the 2023 series of online weekly videos for the liturgical season of Advent. These videos are intended to help the faithful prepare for the celebration of the birth of Our Lord on December 25th, by offering resources and faith formation. Entitled Journey through Adventthe videos are a joint initiative of the Office for Evangelization and Catechesis, the National Liturgy Office and the Office national de liturgie.

This year’s reflections will be led by the Most Reverend Jon Hansen, C.Ss.R., Bishop of Mackenzie-Fort Smith and the Most Reverend Alain Faubert, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Montreal. They will help viewers enter into Advent by presenting reflections on the Gospel readings for each Sunday in Advent and providing spiritual and pastoral guidance.

As we prepare for the arrival of Christ, it is hoped that Journey through Advent will be a source of spiritual comfort and insightful preparation for all.

The videos are uploaded one week at a time throughout Advent and will be available on the CCCB website each Monday in advance of the upcoming Sunday celebration (27 November, 4 December, 11 December and 18 December). To follow the series, the CCCB offers several ways to stay informed:
